4K - 2nd PD Opportunity - Held at MGES!

Upcoming Restaurant Knights

We've planned a couple of restaurant nights to raise money for a couple of technology improvements we want to make in the cafeteria including a new screen and a fixed projector. Please promote these nights with your students!

We will have one at Zaxby's on March 9th from 5-8pm. Share this information with your friends and family, too. We will get a percentage on any purchase made inside of the store. We will not get a percentage on drive-thru sales.

March 9 - Zaxby's - 5-8pm
March 25 - TCBY - 4-9pm
April 15 - TCBY - 4-9pm

Principal Induction Survey

As part of my first year principal training, I am required to undergo a 360 degree evaluation. While this is not part of my district evaluation, I will receive the results from the State Department and will use them for self-reflection and professional and personal growth. Within the week, you all will be getting an email asking for you to complete a survey about me. Please take time to complete honestly and thoughtfully. It is anonymous and all responses are held through a third party. Final results will be compiled for me to see. All surveys must be completed by March 25. Members of the district office will also be asked to complete a survey regarding my performance and leadership this year.

If you haven't received an email from Center for Creative Leadership by Friday, check your junk folder. Thank you so much for proving constructive feedback.
